The idea of co-working may be new to Roanoke but it is booming around the world. Plans are already in place for expansion of Business Lounge to accommodate the expected growth of membership beyond the capacity of the beta test location. Here are some pictures of coworking spaces across the world to give you an idea of the concept.
What is Co-Working?
Coworking is a style of work that involves a shared working environment, sometimes an office, yet independent activity. Unlike in a typical office environment, those coworking are usually not employed by the same organization. Typically it is attractive to freelancers, independent contractors, or people who travel frequently who end up working in relative isolation. Coworking is the social gathering of a group of people, who are still working independently, but who share values, and who are interested in the synergy that can happen from working with talented people in the same space.
